i am having issues with the broadcast EPG being displayed correctly in my mediaportal HTPC. i get all the information being sent but since daylight savings the programmes are all an hour out. the time on the pc is correct but everything in the EPG that it says is currently playing isnt due to start for an hour so all my recordings are subsequently incorrect. anyone else have this issue or any resolve for it? i would assume that its being broadcast incorrectly but considering nobody else has posted about the issue im thinking thats not the case.

How is the time in your PC set?

+12hrs + DST or +13hrs.

Satellite EPG times will be referenced to GMT, so if your PC isn't set to DST properly, the times will mismatch by an hour.

Make sure the time zone is set for NZ for the operating system. Does MP have any separate time settings?

if i set the time back an hour then everything is fine, if i set the time to GMT +11 however it makes no difference which makes me think that the EPG is relative to the time setting itself not the time zone
